Abstract: The Semantic Web Rule Language (SWRL) is a W3C member submission rule language for ontologies. It is based on a combination of the OWL DL and OWL Lite sublanguages of the OWL Web Ontology Language with the Unary/Binary Datalog RuleML sublanguages of the Rule Markup Language. In this paper we propose a transformation of SWRL rules into the object-oriented rule language of CLIPS (COOL). The purpose of this transformation is to enhance an already existing CLIPS-based OWL ontology reasoner, namely O-DEVICE, with the ability to import and execute SWRL rules during the process of building custom ontology-based production rule programs.
